Old Overton Club - Renowned Alabama Golf Venue

Scott G. Sink brings more than three decades of experience in the insurance industry to his role as senior executive vice president at McGriff, Seibels & Williams, Inc., in Birmingham, Alabama. When not busy leading the insurance brokerage firm’s 60-person Energy and Marine Division, Scott G. Sink is an avid golfer who has played all over the world, and at local venues such as Old Overton Club.

Old Overton Club sits southeast of Birmingham in the heavily wooded hills of Vestavia Hills, Alabama. Built on the site of a former strip mine, the picturesque course is the product of a collaboration between Jerry Pate and Tom Fazio, who together incorporated several aspects of the local topography in their design. A rock wall comes into play on the 426-yard fourth hole, while Lake Overton presents a challenge to golfers on several of the back nine holes.

Since opening in 1993, Old Overton has garnered acclaim from publications like Golf Digest, which recognized the club as having the eighth-best course in Alabama for 2017-18. Outside of golf, Old Overton offers activities such as swimming, tennis, and dining.
